Tonightwill see clearing this evening with NORTHERLY wind at40 km/h gusting to 60. The overnight low will be -26C(-15F) with a wind chill of -39C(-38F).

It looks like the Queen and me will be missing the festivities today. When I let Abbey out for her morning business I saw drifts in the driveway. Only in Manitoba would it be melting one day and blizard conditions the next.
Where is that HeavySnow when you need him. :)

Oh, gosh! Looks like real wintertime up there. I have a friend still in northern Minnesota. What kind of person vacations in Minnesota in February? LOL

I hope things settle down a bit - blowing snow's one of those things I don't long for!

Good morning Tony. We got a blast of heat out of the south last night and all our snow is gone. Windy as all hell right now but it still is in the mid 30s. Looks like the skies might clear a bit too. Sure is wet and muddy out right now though. I love going to bed with snow on the ground and waking up with it all gone. Wish it would do that all the time...LOL

Have a great day, stay warm and well.

Tony, I'd tell you to say the heck with it and make snow angels on the ground, but then they might think you were having a seizure, and send you to the hospital! :' )

Stay warm!

Goodness that is a mess of snow for you folks again. So that is what is heading into Ontario over the next few days. Thank goodness, in SW Ont, we will see it as rain as temps will be warm enough to keep it from freezing but Ottawa area will see it as snow. Then comes cool temps again till the end of the month. Will be so glad to see Feb gone.

Stay warm, stay indoors and stay safe.

Good Morning, Tony!

Sorry that arctic temps and snowy, blustery winds have prevented you and the Queen from attending today's Metis holiday festivities. The current scene from your webcam looks really ominous and explains why!

We've been dealing with some of the same wintry issues as you, except, thankfully, our temps haven't dipped into single or minus single digits as yet.

Glad you were finally able to make it online again. I've been dealing with computer problems (freeze-ups, etc.) for over a year now and have been trying to save up to get this thing fixed. No fun having to go through a lengthy circuitous route in order to get safely online. Hope we both can find a reasonable fix to our individual computer problems real soon.

In the meantime, stay safe and warm inside from La Prairian's current winter ravages!
